1979 NHL ordered all new players to begin wearing helmets, however prior players who had signed the waiver before this date were allowed to choose. So over the years after 1979 the number of players allowed to NOT wear a helmet decreased due to the older veterans leaving the game. The last person to not wear a helmet in NHL was Craig MacTavish in 1997. He played for the St. Louis Blues.
Swedish Ice Hockey champion, Sven Tumba invented the first hockey helmet, called the SPAPS-helmet
There are many advantages to having a helmet on when playing hockey. Often in hockey people will "check" other people by slamming them into a wall and a helmet protects players from injuries.
NO hockey helmets are much better. Ski helmets are not that good but do the job. Hockey helmet will protect you much more in short range falls and long range falls the any ski helmet.

No, of course not
I think the first helmet used in hockey was by a goalie named Jacques Plante. He had to use a mask/helmet for the first time in 1959 because of a broken nose, so then it started becoming more popular in the early 1960's for goalies, before any skater wore a a helmet.

They can protect your head from a hockey puck traveling in excess of 60 mph or the uncotrolled weilding of a hockey stick.
When you play hockey mostly required equipment is a cage helmet (street or roller hockey) or just a visor helmet for ice hockey (you can also have a cage helmet for ice) Every type of hockey you should have shin guards Have to have hockey gloves Have to have hockey stick obviously Some people recommend having a mouth guard. Some places make you have elbow pads while some don't.
